Out of the 1,260 kilometers of the Elbe Cycle Path, every single one is crammed with scenic, architectural and historical highlights. Why not make use of a long weekend and take a break from everyday life? In between Dresden and Prague, you’ll pass by fascinating landscapes, in between rock formations and the bohemian forests, by castles, palaces, as well as charming little towns.

All along, you’ll follow the water of the Elbe river, which later turns into the Labe river, to cycle the 220 kilometers from Dresden to Prague in four days. There’s enough time to get off the bike and explore the highlights along the route on this mini vacation, which will most likely go on another one, soon.

    And off you go in Dresden. Always along the Elbe, a beautiful sight chases the next. The absolute highlight on this tour is the Elbe Sandstone Mountains with its famous rock castle Neurahten. On your way to Bad Schandau you have enough time to visit them. An absolute must.

    From Bad Schandau we continue through the National Park Saxon Switzerland with its impressive rocks and immediately across the border to the Czech Republic. On the way to Ústí nad Labem you will cycle along the river called Labe, always staying in the middle of the protected areas of Bohemia. Scenic a true dream.

    Intermediate bike ride. Good fitness required. Some portions of the Tour may be unpaved and difficult to ride.

    Today it goes from the village of Ústí nad Labem (to Aussig Aussig) to the 80 miles away Melnik. But after you already had two days to "warm cycling", you can do that with links. Churches, castles, fortresses, ruins, the beautiful Labe and the Bohemian forests are again shaping the landscape today.

    The last day. From the contemplative Melnik it goes to the great Prague. After the long day of yesterday, today there are only about 50 kilometers to tackle. Thus, you can take your time and admire the great buildings such as castles and palaces along the water. What a great day. Prague is waiting for
